Ofsted give ‘good’ report for Academy


The overall effectiveness of the Skegness Infant Academy, sponsored by the Greenwood Dale Foundation Trust (GDFT), has been classed as ‘good’ by educationa watchdog Ofsted with behaviour and safety judged as ‘outstanding’.

The assessment focussed on the achievement of pupils, the quality of teaching, the behaviour and safety of pupils and the quality of leadership and management.

Inspectors found that ‘behaviour is exemplary’ and that ‘the excellent behaviour in and around the school make a significant contribution to the calm and well-ordered atmosphere in which teachers can teach and pupils can learn without disruption’.

Sue Roy, principal, said: “I want to thank pupils and staff who worked tremendously hard and the families who have supported us to make the academy the ‘good’ academy it is today.

“I am delighted the report found that we provide a safe and stimulating environment in which children can thrive and where learning flourishes and feel confident that we will be found to be ‘outstanding’ the next time.”
